Pankhudi replied, “Dad I would like to go for higher studies, & I will choose graduation in Science stream. Is it ok..?”
Ronit replied, ” My princess I would not force anything on you. It’s your career, you have to decide which stream will be most suitable for you according to your aggregates & your interest in a particular stream.
Pankhudi was so happy, she hugged Ronit, ” you are the best dad of the world, Papa”.
Ronit was so overwhelmed, tears came in his eyes & he began to think, ” betiyon ke liye papa hamesha unke hero hote hain, jinpar unhe pura vishwas hota hai ki woh unka hamesha saath denge”..
